How can Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT) inform strategies to address the increasing normalization of hate within our communities? Given the power of the internet and social media for spreading white supremacist thought, Jessie Daniels, the author of Cyber Racism, will share strategies for countering the spread of racist ideology. Panelists from three TRHT Campus Centers—Jermaine Pearson (Brown University), Charmaine DM Royal (Duke University), and J. Goosby Smith (The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina)—will also discuss how the TRHT Framework can bring about radical change, through storytelling, active listening, and community-engaged work.

The AAC&U Institute on Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation Campus Centers helps campus teams identify evidence-based strategies that support their vision of what their communities will look, feel, and be like when the belief in the hierarchy of human value no longer exists. Teams will work to develop an action plan that includes strategic goals that align with their vision and the existing TRHT framework, steps to achieve those goals, and plans for evaluation, communications, engagement, and sustainability.
